Property Highlights:+

Amazing natural wonders and a fascinating culture - Oman is a fantastic country to experience for curious little minds. All will be revealed at ritzkids, a supervised club for younger guests, offering heaps of activities such as scavenger hunts, rock-painting, origami and movie nights. Other facilities include a covered children's pool, playground and quirky in-room tents for privileged pirates and princesses. If your stay falls over their birthday, expect fun and celebrations at the resort's designed-to-order parties - with a show-stopping setting to blow out candles and devour cake. There are lots of little touches that make Al Bustan Palace a first-class, family-friendly resort.

Spa & Wellness

Echoing exquisite Omani design, Six Senses Spa at Al Bustan Palace is a haven of pure indulgence, featuring tranquil pools, elegant arches, domed ceilings, seventeen therapy rooms, hammams, a yoga studio, fitness suite and relaxation room. Take your pick from all kinds of soothing rubs, scrubs and pampering massages; some that melt away stress and improve circulation, others that nourish and tone or detoxify the body and cleanse the mind. You'll definitely leave the hotel's Six Senses Spa feeling younger, radiant and fully refreshed.

The Beach

The resort's private beach is the country's longest, a stunning one kilometer-long curve of golden sands washed by clear-blue waters. Relax on a lounger or head to the beach club for kayaks, paddleboards, sail boats and snorkels - the warm, tropical seas are filled with colourful fish. The beach is also a place to come at daybreak for a yoga session, perhaps or a barefoot stroll, the soothing sounds of wavelets lapping the shore. At night, sample a menu presenting all manner of seafood, served by candlelight, down on the sands. Al Bustan Palace's beautiful beach is there to enjoy any time of day.
